Women's Health

Women's care is provided in The Health Center by experienced health care providers who are considerate of the sensitive nature of the visit. Our providers are attuned to the sexual, psychosocial, gynecologic, and body image issues that are part of providing comprehensive women’s health care.

Depending on the women’s health issue or service needs, students will be directed to schedule an appointment with a Nurse Practitioner. Some patients with more complex gynecological problems may be referred out to the community to be evaluated by a local OB/GYN consultant. Prenatal care is provided off campus and covered by the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.
